    Hello all,

    I'm a new 2nd grade long term sub and I'm concerned about our daily schedule and whether or not there's enough learning going on. I'm used to working in 3rd-5th where I had students come in get settled/do morning work for 20 minutes, I then taught math for an hour, then did read aloud of 20 minutes, students went to special for 40 minutes, students then went to lunch/recess for 40 minutes. Upon arrival back to the room, I immediately taught reading/writing for 90 minutes, then we did either science/social studies for 30 minutes, packed up and went home.

    NOW, in second grade, my schedule isn't as jam packed and it makes me nervous. There's a LOT of time dedicated to each task we complete. I know they're younger, so I'm just wondering if this is normal? Today we did math, reading and writing. No science or social studies.

    Can some 2nd grade teachers please let me know what your day looks like, including specials/lunch/recess time?

    MANY MANY thanks to you!! :)

    I teach 3rd, but 2nd actually has the same daily schedule as us so I can share. I'll just do it by the minutes.

    45 minutes-specials
    90 minutes-reading
    30 minutes-science OR social studies (we go by units and switch off)
    30 minutes-lunch/recess
    60 minutes-writing
    45 minutes-ESL (they all go, because we are about 98% ELL students. There is an "english only" enrichment class for those that aren't ELL).
    10 minutes-recess
    90 minutes-math
    pack up

    9 - 9:30 -Morning meeting, read aloud, sharing, etc
    9:30 - 10:30 Reading
    10:30 -11 Recess
    11 - 11:30 Specials or Writing
    11:30 - 12:20 lunch
    12:20 - 1 Reading and read aloud

    Science and social studies is almost always integrated into our reading and writing. We do have 1 hour of science lab instead of reading one morning each week

    Thanks for the replies. Perhaps the teacher is just giving me less to do because I'm a sub and the class has more students in it than it should. Many thanks to you all. :)
